~ Clarence Boddicker

Clarence Boddicker was a psychopathic criminal and one of two main antagonists in the 1987 film RoboCop. He was a sadistic and corrupt hitman whose criminal record was quite lengthy and included charges of rape, grand theft and murder.

He was portrayed by Kurtwood Smith who played Red Forman in That 70's Show.

Personality

Can you fly, Bobby?

Boddicker takes advantage of the future corrupt Detroit, Michigan police force and becomes a shameless cop-killer and anarchist, where he went on a bloody citywide rampage where he robbed banks and caused misery for anyone that got in his way. Boddicker was also the hitman of the movie's true antagonist, Dick Jones, who owns the police force.

He is a weasely man with a snide voice and particular hatred for the police, and has assembled a rough band of brutal thugs to do his bidding for the corrupt and powerful people he associates with. Boddicker is perfectly willing to do or say anything to save his own life, including murdering his own friends. Boddicker also often snorted alcohol to get a buzz, something never before seen in film.

RoboCop

Clarence and his thugs were responsible for the death of the police officer who would later undergo heavy surgery an become the cyborg "Robocop", and upon discovering the truth about his past, Robocop becomes intent on bringing Boddicker and his men to justice by any means necessary. Robocop manages to track down and arrest him, only for the corrupt Dick Jones to release him, allowing him to cause more destruction and mayhem in the city.

Death

After Dick Jones is fired, Robocop is able to shoot him out a window to his death. Now he can finally have his vengeance on Clarence, whose men have a final showdown with Robocop at an old steel mill where they combat RoboCop with anti-tank cannons, and Clarence directs his rage at Robocop, taking a length of jagged metal and leaping over to him, battering the cyborg, then plunging the bar through Robocop's breastplate. Leaning in for the kill, he gets too close to Robocop and the cyborg lunges, stabbing him through the neck with his data spike on the arm Clarence shot off when he was human. The wound severs a major artery, causing powerful spurts of blood to come shooting forth in time with Clarence's elevated heartbeat, which reduce in intensity as Clarence falls into the rust filled waters, slowly bleeding to death.
